This year's festivities were made even more special as the luxury superyacht magazine was celebrating its 40th anniversary. Take a look inside the exclusive event…

The highlights

The venue

This year, the choice of venue was the exquisite Le Méridien Beach Plaza in Monte Carlo, a chic poolside terrace overlooking the glistening Mediterranean Sea. An array of superyachts illuminated like jewels on the horizon and lent a truly magical atmosphere to the evening.

To celebrate BOAT's 40th year, ruby was chosen as the theme for the night and esteemed industry professionals, including designers, builders, brokers and other friends of BOAT International, gathered to celebrate this remarkable milestone. Attendees were requested to wear a touch of red in honour, adding a vibrant splash of colour to the evening's dress code.

The entertainment

The evening got off to a showstopping start: BOAT International's CEO Toby Moore took the stage to make a commemorative speech followed by a dazzling performance from a saxophonist whose instrument was lit up with sparklers. A talented DJ set the tone and kept guests on their feet and dancing the night away. The musicians were courtesy of GF Entertainment.
